A Kentucky man has sued Trader Joe's claiming the company wrongfully fired him for posting about new coronavirus-related concerns in a private Facebook group, according to a report Friday.
Kris King argued in the recently filed lawsuit he was terminated from his job at the Louisville Trader Joe’s for “inconsistent behavior patterns” connected to his creation of a Facebook group for store employees to share concerns related to COVID-19, Louisville Business First reported.
A rep for Trader Joe’s did not immediately respond to FOX Business’ request for comment, but spokesperson Kenya Friend-Daniel told the Louisville outlet the company “did not end his employment due to a desire to organize, nor would we do so with any other crew member.”
